The Proposal

Oh!! Gentle maiden,,tell me true,,
Will your fond heart to mine united;
Pulsate the chords for ever new,,
The harmonies of love requited???

The softest dew that ever fell,,
Or when the sun first kis't the morn
No tenderer is,,than when I tell
My love of deathless passion born!!

Oh!! Hide thee not away,,nor crush
Fond heav'n's imortal flower;
stay pretty one; thy blush
Is the hue of fairest bower!!

Hush!! Philomel is pleading too,,
An earnest of my fair intent..
You answer not dear love,,'tis true
That silence ever gives consent...



This was my grandfathers proposal to my Gran....What a wonderful way with words....Wish I had that class of projection.....Enjoy...There are anther 35 like this...Hope I'm not boring you all....I just want to bring you something to make you smile those beautiful smiles you all have...Bless you threaders...I'm glad I found you......LES...
